Cindy Larimore puts her best foot forward, so to speak.

Here it is…This amazing collaboration I have been dying to share with you. It has been in the works for months and keeping it a secret has not been easy. I am excited to announce that two pieces of my artwork have been selected by the talented Michael Grey to create TWO Limited Edition BIRKENSTOCK sandals.

Michael Grey Footwear is an US based luxury sandal company run by Michael himself. He worked as a designer with numerous fashion designers and once he studied the craft of designing/making sandals that his love for custom footwear was born. The sandal factory is all about returning to craft, in a time where handmade footwear has become a lost art.

Michael has specialized in creating truly unique Birkenstocks by collaborating with talented artists around the world. When he put out a call for art back in February, I submitted my artwork. I was thrilled to have my art selected. We worked together to pick two of my paintings to reproduce on Birkenstocks. So, while these shoes are not made in Germany by Birkenstock, they are still official Birkenstocks – and they are limited edition collector’s items.

The cost of the made to order Birkenstocks is $250. I will be posting specific information in the coming days, but know that Art by C. Lari’ Birkenstocks go live on May 15. I will be sending a link to my email subscribers first, and then posting on social media/website. Please help me spread the word…if you know someone who is Birk-obsessed? Feel free to share this with them.
